Photos can only begin to do justice to this marvelous place. A three-bedroom villa carved into a cliff side, it is an unforgettable location for a vacation, perfect for a large family or two or three couples. The views are as spectacular as any on the Amalfi Coast. You have the place entirely to yourselves: a pool, a dozen private... More

There is a reason the Grotta dei Fichi has only 5 star excellent ratings. The week was more than expected. Vincenzo could not do enough for us. His recommendations were all wonderful, from the private boat around Capri to spaghetti factory tour and lunch. On the last day he arranged for car service and interpreter to take us to Postiglione... More

We had a great time at la Grotta dei Fichi! Proprietor Vincenzo Tripani is a gracious host. the food is excellent (esp. his signature pizza with ricotta & lemon zest), the views are breathtaking, the history of how the villa was built is fascinating, travel to Sorrento & Positano is convenient, the accommodations are comfortable, and the wish to go...

The grotta is a spectacular place to vacation. Every room in the villa has a view of the sea. The gracious host is there to make your stay perfect, offering recommendations for activities and restaurants. He also provides a "pizza extravaganza." This is a place you will not easily forget.

A belated review of one of the most amazing vacation experiences I have had. What can I say but grazier to Vincenzo who was simply an incredible host for my family and parents. While off the beaten path, this is a surreal villa that is beyond description. Love, care and attention have been built into the cliffs above the bay... More

The Grotta did not disappoint in any way. It is a unique and beautiful jewel. Vincenzo was extremely kind and helpful. He arranged for a chef to prepare a delicious welcome meal, and we also had him come and bake wonderful pizzas in the wood fired pizza oven. The property is beautifully maintained. We plan on returning in 2016. I... More

We took a big family trip to the Amalfi Coast (a first for all of us) a few weeks ago and the experience was unforgettable! La Grotta dei Fichi is like nothing you've ever seen before. This incredible villa is built into a mountain, and offers luxury, privacy, and more than anything, amazing hosts! Throughout our week-long stay, our host... More

A wonderful place to live the Italian experience. Vincenzo is an amazingly super organised host and will plan your holiday for you if you so wish. We stayed 10 days in his beautiful villa that was painstakingly carved out of the rock by his father. It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and an... More

I was looking for the perfect, private place for my husband to relax/retreat from a sometimes stressful work environment. I found it in the "Annnex" to La Grotta dei Fichi. The physical footprint, and the amenities of the Annex are not as grand, or impressive as the main villa, but they are none-the-less most charming, and delightful. It was the... More

The villa has breathtaking views, great location and is a true escape from reality! From cooking lessons, home-made pizza, relaxation days to day trips to Capri it's overall a trip of a lifetime! Would return in an instant.
